Taste test: This thin, pliable energy bar had the same texture as the various other flavors of the original PowerBar.
The taste was neither strongly chocolatey nor strongly peanutty. If I had not known from the wrapper that this was supposed to be chocolate and peanut butter flavor, I probably would not have guessed the flavor correctly (and I wouldn't have guessed chocolate or peanut butter individually either). Mostly, it just tasted like a PowerBar. So as a chocolate and peanut butter bar, it was kind of disappointing.
Smell test: Smells like chocolate and peanuts, but different from a Reese's.
From the package: “The Original Energy Bar ... “Suggested Use: Athletes should consume 60-70% of calories from carbohydrates, the body's most efficient source of fuel. PowerBar® Performance is loaded with 45g of carbohydrates for sustained energy. For best results, eat 30 min. before activity with 8-16 oz. water to aid with the absorption of nutrients and maintain hydration.”
